Samsung: no plans to bring Galaxy Tab 7.7 and Galaxy Note 5.3 stateside?
Remember the sweet Super AMOLED display-toting Android devices unveiled by Samsung yesterday? Well we might not even get a chance to say hello to them over on this side of the Atlantic. It has been reported that the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 and Samsung Galaxy Note 5.3 might not be making their way over here – at least not anytime soon. The folks over at GottaBeMobile approached a Samsung spokesperson at the IFA conference yesterday to ask about the company’s plans to bring the tablet to the US, and they received a disappointing answer.According to the spokesperson, Samsung currently has no plans to introduce the Galaxy Tab 7.7 and the Galaxy Note 5.3 in the US. Judging by that response, it looks like consumers will need to get the Android devices imported if they want to enjoy the Super AMOLED awesomeness. Of course, it’s never too late for Samsung to change their minds and work out a way to bring the tablet and tablet-phone here. How many of you were looking forward to buy the Tab 7.7 or Note 5.3?

Publisher’s note: note that it is not unusual for companies do deny “any plans” of doing “anything” before such a plan has been approved by the exec staff. Now, it’s highly likely that the devices will make their way to the USA, if they are successful in whatever market Samsung uses to dip their toes in the market (Korea, Europe…). Samsung has told us before that there were no plans to bring the Samsung Galaxy S2 to the USA, but it evidently arrived – even if it was 3 months after Europe got it. So yes, Samsung has no official plans, but there’s a bit of added drama in those reports.
